Work Against Food Insecurity with Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm

THE STORY:

Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Many Americans are one job loss or medical crisis away from food insecurity – the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Contrary to popular belief, rural communities demonstrate higher rates of food insecurity than those living in urban households.

The Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm traditionally raises meat animals and grows vegetables as part of its interpretive mission celebrating rural life and the world of the country doctor. Moving forward we would like to produce an increased supply beyond what we use in our on-site programming so that we can donate pasture-raised meats and sustainable produce to area food banks during the 2017 harvest season.

How can you help? If we raise $500-1,000, we can expand our vegetable gardens and begin donations as soon as the summer harvest begins. Long term, we would like to be able to donate meat: we estimate that it will cost us approximately $1,500 to raise and process a hog during the 2017 calendar year, while the cost of raising a beef cow is a two-year commitment with an estimated cost of $2,500 per animal and a processing date in 2018.

No amount is too small! And if you are vegetarian or vegan, you can specify that your donation be used for garden expansion. Thank you for your consideration as we lok for ways to benefit our community.
